At Data Science Nigeria, we believe that Africa’s development can be accelerated through world-class data capacity building and talent development in the emerging data digital revolution.
We have also recognised that mentorship and experiential learning can fast-track the assimilation and application of learning in high-intensity fields like Data Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Advanced Analytics.
We are seeking world-class professional data science practitioners either in the industry or in the academic community to mentor young Nigerians via regular emails and tele-chats via a tracked mentoring programme.
This programme requires the volunteer mentors to invest at least 60 minutes within 14 days to coach, guide and inspire aspiring local data scientists. This will complement our local bootcamps, regular Kaggle competitions, and student exposure to projects as part of our goal to train 1,000,000 data experts in 10 years.
Our mentors are people who genuinely love to see others grow and want to share their expertise and experience with some highly-motivated students and their fellow mentors from around the globe!
Our mentors enjoy flexible schedule with their mentees. Mentors work remotely and set their own hours.

This relational learning principle is also relevant for datapreneurs who require guidance and hand-holding support for sustained growth.
This is why we are promoting learning via mentorship through our #MentorAfricanDataScientists.
